  Ziggy Stardust Poetry  

To Ziggy

You're pale but it's beautiful
Not pale like a corpse
But radiant
Like Cleopatra's milkbath
Vulnerable pink
Like the coating on a shell
That is white underneath
Your paleness is a spotlight
On your face
Your auburn hair is
A wreath of flowers
I hope it never wilts
Your beauty is a crown
That slowly brings you down
But you're still beautiful
Like Cleopatra's milkbath

Sophia (2000)
